Spots on thin Boston defense are tougher to land than they seem

While the Boston Bruins have been very active this offseason, one of the areas still filled with question marks is defense where, aside from Zdeno Chara, the personnel on the roster seems a bit underwhelming. The Bruins traded Dougie Hamilton in June, but they never picked up a defenseman to replace him. Fans are also still reeling from a trade last fall which sent Johnny Boychuk...

Islanders Insight Top Shelf: 7/20/15

Islanders Insight Top Shelf: 7/20/15 The dust has settled and we now have a pretty good idea of what the Islanders roster will look like heading into training camp. The Islanders have not made a ‘big move’ this offseason trusting that some of their young players will take the next step in their careers however there is still some work to be done on the backend in my estimation...

Islanders Insight Top Shelf: “A Life Without Hockey Is No Life at All” 7/17/15

Islanders Insight Top Shelf: “A Life Without Hockey Is No Life at All” We’re getting deeper into the lull that is the NHL offseason and, despite knowing players need a rest and personally not looking forward to another winter so soon, I could really use something hockey related.

Injuries to key players, including Zdeno Chara and Dougie Hamilton, forced young players into larger roles, and the preseason trade of Johnny Boychuk created a need for a top-four defenseman that was never filled. As a result of these factors and others, the Bruins fell to 20th...
